Britons reveal which views they are afraid to express

Most Britons are sometimes afraid to express their political or social views for fear of a negative response, though two-thirds are still unaware what the phrase “cancel culture” means, a new poll from YouGov has revealed.

Over half (57%) of the survey’s 1,677 adult respondents said that, at least sometimes, they have stopped themselves from expressing their political or social views “for fear of judgment or negative responses from others.” Only 27% claimed that they always expressed their views.

Regarding which views Britons were most likely to hide, the poll revealed that in most cases, it was something that might be considered as “un-progressive.” For example, 33% of those who see high levels of immigration being a bad thing for the country said they hide their views on the issue from others, compared to only 10% of people with pro-immigration views doing the same.
